Unsolicited Phone Call Scams: "Sell your timeshare"
Scams and scammers using these names: Steve or Kyle, 800-859-9394, Global Timeshare Sales
"he has a buyer for your timeshare"
Are you looking to sell your timeshare?
Or you don't even have a timeshare, but received a call from "Steve or Kyle" claiming to be from Global Timeshare Sales
at 800-859-9394? Note that reports from consumers claim that he says they has a buyer for your timeshare, but
oddly, you have to pay him his commission and fees, upfront! Scam alert!
That's a clue to a scam right there! These callers may not even be employees of
Global Timeshare - which may or may not be legitimate. The point is: don't
trust any unsolicited phone calls or emails you receive about selling a
timeshare, house, etc.
Email 1 - from a potential victim:
I received a call from a Steve who said he
represented Global Timeshare Sales. He said that he had a buyer for my
timeshare. Since I have never spoken to anyone at that company, I was
suspicious to begin with, but played along to see what the scam was. After
they "sold" my timeshare for a "great profit", the manager, Kyle Miller
called and explained how I would be receiving all the closing papers, etc.
First I would need to use my credit card and pay them $1,950. Since I
wasn't willing to do that, I figured they could just take that out of the
sale, he would just have to move on to the next property. The contact phone
# is 1-800-859-9394 ext. 103 for Kyle, ext. 114 for Steve. The number that
showed up on my caller ID was 407-581-3756. Steve said they were located in
Orlando, FL. I looked up Global Timeshare Sales on Google and found the
address in Kissimmee, FL but the number given had been disconnected; it was
a 407 area code. I found a website for Global Timeshare Sales and it said
it was located in Brockton, MA.
I would hate to think these guys would get anyone to
pay. I'm sure that if they did, something would happen and the "buyer would
back out or something".
A quick search in Google shows this is a common scam with many complaints. They also use
